The amount of garbage flashes in swfchan is ASTOUNDING. There should be an effective way to eliminate all the pathetic furry fetish flashes and bring to light the hidden bits of quality, drowned by this piss poor shit. The "popular" list is very unreliable, and reaction tags leave out most of the good stuff waiting to be discovered.
Some of us are brave enough to wade through the sea of garbage and bring back something good. A simple "user list" system should be implemented, so users can highlight what they find best and others can enjoy without sacrifice. A rating system is also sorely needed (the kind that includes negative numbers) for flashes and user lists. A "lists" tab should then be added to show the top rated/most recent user lists. This would surely improve swfchan by lots.
I'm actually working on something just like this in the background. That is to say, I began working on it and then took a break. Maybe I'll start working on it again now that I know at least someone wants the thing. Cheers for the suggestions and the motivation!
